Cutting trees is bad for your health!

Anyone have any Idea what that image is? Just another C4D render when I was supposed to be studying. By the way, have any of you tried cutting trees with axes? I mean dry ones which are on the ground after they fall down.
Anyway,
“Jerry!!! Phone Call!”. Mumbling. “Yeah…..cmn..”. Dragging Footsteps. Misses a step. Groan. Gets up. Painfully. Painstakingly drags himself toward the phone.

Fifteen minutes ago –
I was engulfed in the world of Crisis Four (Andy McNab) and Nick Stone’s work when I hear my sister. “Snake! Theres a snake in my room!”. Just my luck. Come home from school and finish eating etc. and here comes a stupid snake to spoil my siesta. I stand my ground. Approximately thirty seconds later, my mother comes down and says “Jerry!” With all the guilt she can roll into one word. So I get a broom, And drag myself upstairs to do battle with the Reptilian.
No Snake. My sister says it went out through the gap between the roof and the wall. No idea how it got that high in the first place.
So I walk downstairs again. Stupid flying…bird…snake…. fnake, or snird or whatever.
Sit down again. “As I moved away from the TV set, a loud ping! sent my heart leaping into my throat. I spun my head and…”
“Jerry! We have to move the fallen tree from the side of the wall”. Stupid falling trees…frees… tallings…..
Walk down to the gate. Look at the log. Try to pull it. Kick it. Won’t budge. Not even a smidgen of movement. “We’ll have to cut it. I’ll get the axe”. Great. Now, this is the action that brought me to my curent state. I think, Piece of cake. Get the axe.
First Blow.
My back starts paining.
Second Blow.
Weird feeling of exhaustion.
Successive Blows.
Axe gets harder to control and I start sweating litres.
By the time I cut it enough to break it in two, I had lost about 95% of my energy. Plus I had aquired many blisters on my hands, thanks to the stupid axe handle. Then I manage to stumble back into the house, up the stairs into the shower, and it’s a battle to take my t-shirt off! I use both hands to turn the shower on, and I find it’s hard to bend my elbows.

Present –

Why this happened I have no idea whatsoever. Maybe it’s the combination of my scone and chocolate breakfast and sitting the whole day thanks to the exams? I mean, I still can’t use my fingers properly! And I used to play rugger! There has to be some medical cause!
EDIT – I was later told by my all knowing brother that it was probably because I was inactive all day and suddenly did it. Without any stretching or anything. Yeah yeah, Who stretches before cutting down a tree…

    dolt! stretching loosens up your muscles. Since you are chronically unfit (unlike me I would say) you suffered. Sad.

    Feel the pain snird!

    I didn’t know about any snake!

    This is way off the topic, nothing to do with your tree cutting

    Just to say I clicked on your Google ad. πŸ˜›

    Don’t worry I am the ‘resident clicker’. I am asked to click my son’s ads , my nieces ads, so, one more to click won’t make a difference.

    However, I have to tell you, what I tell others, when you get your cheque I want my present. πŸ˜›
